At November's meetup, David Pollak, Lift's founder, discusses some of the new features in Lift 3 including Streaming Promises (awesome for AngularJS work), Client-side Actors (send a message to a server-side Actor and magically it invokes a function in the browser and vice versa), asynchronous REST, and some of the enhancements to Lift's templating (support for arbitrary tags as well as data- attributes). More importantly, David will spend a bunch of time ranting about how HTML-generating web frameworks are dead (they just don't know it) and other fun topics.
Food and drinks will be provided.
6:30 - Doors open

Audax Health is located in the Georgetown waterfront building:
3000 K St. NW, Sixth Floor
Washington, DC 20007
Metro - We are about a 15 minute walk from the Foggy Bottom metro stop on the Blue and Orange line
Parking - Our building has a parking garage (http://en.parkopedia.com/parking/underground/washington_harbour_center/20007/washington/) The entrance is on the river side of K street (under Whitehurst Freeway), between Thomas Jefferson St. and 30th St. It's a flat $10 after 4PM.
Once you've parked or have arrived at the Washington Harbor complex, our building is the one on the left if you are looking towards the river. The entrance is at street level, to the left of the smaller fountain (if you see Tony & Joes or Sequoia, go up the stairs away from the river and turn right). The doors are locked but we will have someone at the front desk from 6:30 until 8, so just knock.
Here is a link to a map with the parking garage entrance and our building entrance marked:
Please RSVP if you plan on attending. Thanks!
